I re-encoded episodes 1-2 just because they where many years old. Most of you would probably notice no real difference what-so-ever, but feel free to re-download the updated versions from the archive: here.
We here at Erobeat, make every attempt to release to make sure our releases are of the highest possible quality. Scripts need to be edited, checked, and we would not release anything until we had the highest quality video source available. The problem is that, these things take time… Far too much time.
As the group grew, so did our ambition. In our endless pursuit for perfection, we have fallen behind on the overwhelmingly high number of projects undertaken. Sure, there’s school and stuff that keeps many of us busy, but falling behind puts a large drain of my motivation to continue.
Slow releases were acceptable when we were the only ones around, but that is no longer the case. Fansubbing in this area has become increasingly competitive, and our flaws have given rise to new entrants to fill the void. In order for us to remain compeitive, something needs to happen.
tl;dr: It is time for change. Quality matters, but so does speed.
I hereby announce that for most new series we will:
1) Get it done.
2) Get it done quickly.
3) Fix it later.
From now on, many new releases will be speedsubbed and tagged with [LQ]. LQ releases will skip the lengthy editing and quality check phases. Low quality internet RAWs will be used. By doing this, we can ensure that we release at super-human speed. We will then do a proper release some weeks later once we obtain the DVDs or Blu-Rays.
Why download someone else’s release and replace it with ours later? You now have the pleasure to download ours twice if you want speed, but also a high quality version for safe keeping.
By the way, we will work on (almost) all the new stuff from now on.
Here is the first of the rapid-fire releases.
Here is a little update on how things are going:
- The stream of re-releases are mostly done by myself do not take away from time the other staff spends on new stuff, so don’t worry.
- No incomplete series that we have released at least one episode of is dropped.
- Most, if not all, series that we have planned to work on, but have been already been completed by another group is dropped (with the exception of shows from a particular company which shall not be named).
- We will be ramping up speed and shifting focus to newer series starting next month.
Some Blu-Ray releases to come:
- Beat Blades Haruka – Complete Edition (Extra Scenes/3D Content)
- Kanojo x Kanojo x Kanojo – Complete Edition (Extra Scenes)
- Shin Ringetsu
- Gakuen Saimin Reido – Ep 3
